Namma Hudugaru Movie Review : A conventional love story which fails to evoke interest
Barma is a happy-go-lucky college student who lives life to the fullest by spending time with his friends, He doesn’t care about the next moment and is always ready to do anything for his friends. However, he is often scolded by his father for not doing work around the house.
Barma falls in love with Gowri (Radhya), daughter of a powerful village head, Hulligowdru, as a result of which even his friends are reluctant to help him. Even Barma fails to confess his feelings towards Gowri. A comedy of errors caused by his friends makes him believe that he is actually in a relationship with Gowri which takes the story to a different dimension. Parallelly, Gowri’s family desperately wants her to get married according to their wishes, which leads to many quarrels.
Namma Hudugaru, which has a predictable and flagging storyline, is a typical village love story in the Mandya Kannada dialect, a tried-and-tested formula in Sandalwood. Though the movie has twists and turns, it falls flat. The film, which is very conventional, fails to score even in the narration. Even Vasishta’s cameo fails to provide any impetus to the story. Niranjan Sudhindra, however, shows promise and gets into the skin of the character seamlessly.
